Molybdenum isotope behaviour accompanying weathering and riverine transport in a basaltic terrain

Abstract:

The application of the molybdenum (Mo) isotope system as a proxy for determining changes in the redox state of the oceans is predicated on the assumption that the composition of continental input can be characterised from crustal rock types, and remains constant. However, it has recently been shown that the δ98/95Mo composition of global rivers varies between 0.15% and 2.4% and is therefore systematically heavier than the average composition of the continental crust (~0%). In order to underst...
